Halloween Tips

  1. Wait until October 31st to buy your Halloween candy so that you don’t end up with a bunch of chocolate sitting around your house tempting you for weeks. And then don’t open the bags until the first trick-or-treater arrives at your door.
  1. Give out candy you don’t like.  Gummy worms, Pop Rocks, lollipops, Sour Patch Kids – anything that won’t tempt you but that the kids will enjoy.
  1. Try giving out non-candy treats to the kiddos.  Get something cool like glow sticks, temporary tattoos, disappearing ink, Lego mini-figures, Hot Wheels or anything you can pick up at the dollar store.
  1. Just say “No.”  The first piece of candy is the easiest to turn down.  After you give in and allow yourself to have “just one” it often opens the floodgates and the next thing you know you’re halfway through the bag.
  1. Chew some sugarless gum to avoid mindlessly popping miniature candy bars into your mouth – you’ll discover that chocolate isn’t very good when it’s eaten while you’re chewing gum.
  1. Give out more and more candy to each kid as it gets later in the evening and as the trick-or-treating hordes begin to thin out, so that by the end of the night you end up giving it all away. This will have the added benefit of making you the coolest house on the block.
  1. Bring leftover candy to work. If you end up with candy left over come November 1st, bring it to your work and abandon it in the company lunchroom.  This will have the added benefit of making you the skinniest one at your office.
  1. Don’t let our guard down too soon. After successfully making it through Halloween we often decide to indulge in a favorite piece or two from our children’s collection and before you know it … So be careful and don’t relax too early.
  1. If things don’t go exactly as planned and you do end up stumbling a little (or even a lot) don’t allow yourself to use it as an excuse to continue to overindulge for the entire week. Just get up, dust yourself off and do better tomorrow. Remember, it’s persistence not perfection that’s going to get you to your goal.
